't working. he was ready to shop around in a way that herbert hoover, by temperament, could not have done... uh, and try one method or another. if the president had little time for keynes' mathematics, he showed interest in numbers that told how many americans were still without jobs. in the first four years, the roosevelt administration launched the nra, ccc, wpa-- a virtual alphabet soup of programs to relieve unemployment. newly employed workers spent more money, creating more jobs. by 1936, it appeared that the depression was ending. it was time for a balanced budget. central revenues are increasing. emergency expenditures are decreasing. a balanced budget is on the way. does that sound like bankruptcy to you? roosevelt won a landslide re-election, but the celebration was brief. he cut spending. in october 1937, the stock market took another dive. unemployment began to rise once again. suddenly it appeared that the past four years' progress would unravel. president roosevelt may have been an economic conservative, but he was a social liberal. he saw rising unemployment and responded b
mercilessly at one point said that he was the worst president since herbert hoover and said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war, which is nonsense. and was very antihis own party and people. you can disagree. if you're disgreeshl, people don't forget that. >> both senator mccain and senator lindsay graham said they will likely to vote to end it. >>> hardly the only political split playing out in washington. spending cuts go into place in two weeks. unless they go into sequestration. >> we're going to insist that they finally pass a plan to replace the president's sequester, this sequester was the president's idea, his party needs to follow through on their plans to replace it's time for the senate to do their work. if they're willing to pass a bill we'll find some way to work with them to address this problem. >> would you rather see the sequester kick in rather than includes some tax deal? >> when the senate passes a plan we would be happy to take a look at it. >> president obama has called on congress to pass a smaller package of spending cuts to delay the sequeste
bush mercilessly at one point said he was the west president since herbert hoover. said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war which is nonsense. and was very anti- his own party and people. people don't forget that. >> john: because for some in the g.o.p., there's nothing more wrong than being right. republicans will continue to punish hagel for the crime of being right. connoisseurs of paranoia likely won't forget another new outburst from the nra's wayne won't pea air. today, he accused president obama of launching "the most aggressive campaign in history to destroy second amendment rights." including -- >> bans on millions of commonly-owned rifles, shotguns and handguns. bans on tens of millions of standard magazines. bans on private transfers. even between family members. >> john: that came after lapierrre published an opinion piece on "the daily caller," the comedy site that doesn't realtize is a comedy site when he said gun owners need their weapons to protect their family from a total collapse of society. a collapse mr. lapierrre says he saw a response of in
herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war, which is nonsense. and was very anti his own party and people. people don't forget that. you can disagree, but if you're disagreeable, people don't forget that. >> all right. let's break this down. >> to be honest with you, neil, it goes back to there is a lot of ill will towards senator hagel because when he was a republican -- >> because when he was a republican. did you catch that? when he was a republican. because chuck hagel lost his republican card when he didn't just blindly march in lockstep with the republican party. what is next? >> he attacked president bush mercilessly, at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover. >> well, what are the numbers? george w. bush did leave office as one of the most unpopular departing presidents in the history of the country with a final approval rating of 22% there is a reason. >> said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war, which is nonsense. >> hagel's only mistake here is his refusal to be a head-nodding warhawk. ha
towards george w. bush, is really upset because chuck hagel compared w. with herbert hoover? you are republicans trying to subvert the foreign policy of the united states over an old and bitter grudge? let's bring in ari melber and democrat strategist julian ep sto epstein. what is senator mccain's problem? is he trying to defend a mode okur president bush or is he trying to defend a failed war in iraq? >> i think it's more iraq where we know senator mccain has long stood by our presence there and adding troops there, but bottom line if you take this as the mccain filibuster standard, then no one in any democratic administration ever gets a vote because, guess what? a lot of them have good faith and i think well-grounded disagreements with george w. bush. so this cannot be the standard. it's not defensible on its own terms and that's the problem. they are erecting a supermajority hurdle for all of this legislation and all of these nominees. this is an old problem from the way the republicans have been acting and it doesn't stand up because by this standard again you would not let
mercilessly. at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war, which is nonsense, and was very anti his own party and people. people don't forget that. >> you should have forgot the fact because he never did say he was the worst president since herbert hoover. wait until they start with you. >> exactly. >> who put mike mccain in charge of determining chuck hagel's fate. minority leader mitch mcconnell has deputized senator john mccain as the weather vane by which to judge when republicans should yield on the filibuster. that might be a confounding decision since john mccain seems to drift from one position to another. sometimes in a matter of hours. on sunday mccain had this to say about the prospect of a filibuster against hagel. let's watch. >> we've never filibustered a presidential cabinet appointee, and i don't think we should start here. >> well, on monday, which is a day later of course, mccain was urging his colleagues on the armed services committee to vote on hagel's nomination saying, i beli
was the worst president since herbert hoover and said the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war, which was nonsense. he was antihis own party and people. people don't forget that. you can disagree but if you're disagreeable, people don't forget that. finally, chuck hagel does not have the qualification in the view of many of us to everybody is. no managerial experience, his answers on iran were troubling.y what they're going to do by what they've done in the past and that record is nod good. at the same time the president won the election and he can select his nominees, but we have advice and consent. >> if you could stick around here if possible, we would appreciate it. more with nor mccain on this and the future -- the potential next secretary of defense. a better than 50/50 thing a little more than days ago, now in maybe serious doubt today. much more after this. today is gonna be an important day for us. you ready? we wanna be our brother's keeper. what's number two we wanna do? bring it up to 90 decatherms. how bout ya, joe? let's go ahead and bring it online. attention on
president since herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war, which is nonsense, and was very anti his own party and people. people don't forget that. >> you may not agree with what senator mccain said there, but that's basically what appears to be a grudge match, and that's why we said grudge match with a question mark. when you listen to senator mccain, is he wrong? do you agree with him? >> well, actually, i agree with senator mccain that chuck hagel is not the right guy. i also agree with the washington post who said around the first of the year mr. president, don't pick chuck hagel. he is not the right guy for d.o.d. he is well to the left of the policies of the obama administration during the first four years. so basically here's the problem. there has been a bipartisan mainstream support for national security, for our middle east policy dating back to 1978 with jimmy carter for israel, for our approach to iran, and chuck hagel has made a career out of being outside of that mainstream. engaging in hyperbole and all sorts of edgy statements. now
, at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst mrunter since the vietnam war, which is nonsense. and was very anti his own party and own people. people don't forget that. you can disagree but if you're disagreeable, people don't forget. >> it sounds like john mccain is fighting old fights here. how does that help us with our national security today? >> i don't necessarily think he's fighting old fights. he's pointing out if you're going to appoint someone to be secretary of defense and they're going to try to implement policy that maybe changes the shape of our military and deals heavily with our foreign policy, you need someone that can get the trust of the u.s. senate. if you've had someone that's broken a lot of personal connections and has really upset, anger and inflamed a large portion of the u.s. senate, maybe they're not the best choice for the position. >> jimmy, is there anything about this that says, look, this is a weakness on president obama's part? he's unable to get as a second-term president even his cabinet confir
with herbert hoover and messed it up, messed up something good. beyond all the things, bigger government was hoover and roosevelt followed with even bigger. so i thought, "what was it they messed up?" and i had to go back and write a new beginning and show what it was that was lost in order to show the extent of the loss. and i thought this is very interesting. the economics of the 1920's, we don't discuss them that much. we think they were a lie. great gatsby, prohibition. people's untruths. economists say that growth is interesting and real, most of it. and we talk about for example r.c.a. radio corp was described in some of the book the crash of the stock is a big lie, just a bubble. but they had an interesting invention on its mind what we would now call television that did turn out to be profitable much later. we look in economics, sometimes markets over shoot when they they are anticipating gains. the markets of the 1920's were really interesting. look at it from the point of view, the government the single thing that coolidge did is when he left office, the budget was lower than w

of like why would you take foreign policy advice from dick cheney. after the crash of '29, herbert hoover kept coming to republican conventions and giving these big speeches every four years, and every time he did it, democrats just celebrated because it reminded the entire country of how they got to where they are. so i would assume that democrats would actually encourage dick cheney, keep coming on television, keep giving the american people advice, keep suggesting what's wrong with president obama because you can guess which side people will wind up on. >> ryan grim and julian epstein, thank you so much for joining us. >>> next, the state of the u.s. economy and why some in washington just can't say yes to this particular president. stay with us. >> someone should give senator graham a snickers bar and tell him to go sit in the corner until he's happy about something. >> right. >> it's disturbing. >> i mean, unless he's got sugar problems and he's low, his sugar is low, i don't think a snickers bar is going to help him. ♪ oh, sugar, honey honey ♪ you are my candy girl to grow, we h
in the 20s and 30s by like herbert hoover and as treasury secretary andrew melon and to some degree that's the view held by some people in the u.s. congress, some people at the fed. the alternative view-- . >> rose: just before we leave that some people in the fed, people know people in the congress. are you talking about mainly, you know, people who -- >> i'm talking about republicans who are-- were very much opposed to the stimulus package and who are very suspicious of the fed's efforts to buy bonds and cut rates. >> rose: and part of the reason is they believe that there's too much spending and too much deficit and that is a-- has a negative effect on the growth of economy. >> yeah, yeah. they believe that. but there are a number of people who are more moderate who care about the debt and deficit in the long term but don't say that in the short term you need to cutback. >> rose: but that's the bake point. >> yeah. >> rose: in terms of what you do in the short term versus the long term. >> exactly. >> rose: a lot of people understand what the deficit means or the debt means to a natio
said he was the worst president since herbert hoover. said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war, which is nonsense. and was very anti-his own party and people. people don't forget that. >> there you go. a delay is never a good thing, because it does give hagel's opponents additional time to try to torpedo his nomination. the fact that hagel essentially got 59 votes, including four from republicans, suggest that he's likely to be confirmed when this vote comes up again on february 26th. the fact is hagel's going to be a weakened secretary of defense in all of this. is that damage temporary or permanent? yesterday also highlighted a growing problem with the gop, that they are dealing, and one many republicans outside of d.c. fret about. it's clear what the gop is against, but the question remains, what are they for? by the way, the hagel fight, that's also demonstrated the degree to which some republicans will not give up the benghazi fight. the white house provided more information about benghazi in a letter to senators, mccain, graham, and ayotte on thursday, but

president bush mercilessly, at one point said he was the worst president since herbert hoover, said that the surge was the worst blunder since the vietnam war, which is nonsense. >> john mccain's hangup with chuck hagel is about iraq. it's about chuck hagel at the height of the iraq war going before the united states senate and the american people and saying this -- >> i don't know how many united states senators believe we have a coherent tragedy in iraq. i don't think we've ever had a coherent strategy. there is no strategy. this is a ping-pong game with american lives. these young men and women that we put in anbar province, in iraq, in baghdad are not beans. they're real lives. and we better be damn sure we know what we're doing, all of us before we put 22,000 more americans into that grinder. we better be as sure as you can be. and i want every one of you every one of us, 100% of us to look in that camera, and you tell your people back home what you think. don't hide anymore, none of us. >> that's what this is about. it's about iraq. we should have known that this was john mcca
